That Rail Is A Sack Factory

ICYMI: The D.O.A. dudes have a new edit and tribute video out for their friend Drew Grabowski ❤️

Nollies into flatscreen TVs, noseslides on boat boards, and a dumpster-adjacent spot that’ll inevitably send group texts scouring “where is this?!” in Neema Joorabchi’s “feast your eyes” edit featuring all the dudes from the Til It’s Gone video.

Joe Cups uploaded a reel of Alex Olson, Jason Dill and Anthony Pappalardo kicking around Manhattan back in 2004.

Jenkem uncovered a trove of unseen skate photos from New York in the 1980s.

A ‘Til It’s Gone’ Encore — ‘what dreams are made of’ by Neema Joorabchi

A winter mission to New York’s first-ever concrete skatepark (now recovered from the floods of summer), a #spotcheck at that new bump by Soho, Janet Jackson merch, and a prolonged sesh at the far-sketchier-than-it-looks Ridgewood Reservoir bank-to-hill made famous by the Bronze videos — in what amounts to an encore of Til It’s Gone, one of the standout videos from this season of winter releases.

Noah Singleton’s Part in ‘Til It’s Gone’ By Neema Joorabchi

There are spots that everyone always skates by and throws hypotheticals on: “one day, someone will ollie this gap,” “one day, someone will 5050 this rail.”

For years, people would throw out eventualities about the kinked rail beside the 53rd Street side of the Seagram Building, which is, of course, a Ludwig Mies van der Rohe-designed landmark, a onetime home of The Famous Expensive Restaurant™, and the site of the green step-up ledges that the building’s security guards have grown an increasing affinity for throwing water on.

As ride-on grinds expanded in popularity, that fantasy got adapted for the modern age: “imagine if someone grinded that.”

“That” being the ledge that ran beside the eight-flat-nine double set.

This Year Halloween Fell On A…

Sorry, sometimes the headline is too obvious to resist 💋

WOW2G is a new 22-minute video by Eighty Twenty, Hell World, and the Travel Skateshop family. Half-New York, half-Jersey spots. Aron Moloney (first full part) and Derek Thor (second-to-last part) both crush it. The pinches on those switch front crooked grinds!

Also a decent dose of Jersey City footy in Neema Joorabchi’s new B-roll montage.

If you haven’t seen Fred Gall’s “Out There” on Thrasher, it fucking rules. Make yourself a nice sandwich and throw on his Bobshirt interview from 2018 afterwards.

We will have a small round of new mainline QS items going live in our webstore at 11 A.M. E.S.T. on this Friday, September 17. (That stuff is also available through a select batch of U.S. shops.)

In the meantime, shorts + some other summer stuff is on sale in the webstore, so stock up for your warm winter getaway ;) thanks everyone for the support.

There’s no way you haven’t seen the Dime x Vans video yet, right? Hugo Balek = Jake Johnson. Ben Blundell… 🎶 That Ben is a real crowd pleaser 🎶
